    This is from the ICM's set of luftwaffe winter pilot and field maintenance set #48086, enjoy
  2. The beast has moveable landing gear and rudders 🙂 So this is the photoshoot only in a "parked" mod. Most of the pics are also on a direct sunlight, which helps make the Have Glass shines and reflections more pronounced. And of course - a big Thank you guys, for all the kindness, ideas and guidelines throughout this build! Here is the WIP topic and the "In-flight" Rollout. And now let's get started with some on-the-ground sillhouettes...

    F-23A Black Widow II

    What`s up guys? :) Here is what i got yesterday - this wonderful HobbyBoss kit in 1/48. The YF-23 is a very cool plane, but i plan to make it even cooler - for instance how it should look like as a serial F-23A Black Widow II. Of cource, i don`t plan to start it any time sooner. Yet check out this monter kit - so nice boundaries and continuities and curves and shapes... beauty beauty!

    F-23A Black Widow II - the rollout

    Hi all! Here is my recently finished model - the infamous F-23A Black Widow II, as she could have look like if entering into serial production. 🙂 The weathering also features quite a significant amount of "what if", but for the conversion i used all the unclassified pics and diagrams on the www.yf-23.net website. I tried to make this kit as correct as possible while sticking to the mentioned dimensions, angles, etc. - all the changes from the prototype version YF-23. As a base kit - it is the HobbyBoss's 1/48 kit and here is the WIP topic. (PS: the pics on the first pages are invisible... don't know why...) and another PS: the landing gear and the rudders move, so i'll take a couple of photosessions - in an in-flight mode and parked. Overall photoshoot:
  5. Hi- Just got an '80s NOS Monogram 1/48 F-104C via eBay, which dropped with the colorful 479th scheme and the SEA camo 'Smoke II" decal sheet. Unfortunately the OEM sheet is way out of register, with much of the print off the carrier and on the backing sheet. So I've been looking for Kursad's benchmark F-104C in Vietnam sheet and it is non-existent at pretty much all online and bricks-mortar shops... Sprue Bros, Hannants and others overseas... forget it. Does anyone have the partial sheet they'd be willing to part with, after finishing your chosen subject? Name your price.] Thanks-
  6. Hi all! I am back after a bit of a break with my latest completed model, the 1/48 Special Hobby AJ 37 Viggen from 7 sqd of the Swedish Air Force. The kit is actually very nice to build, and has some really nice detail. There are a few errors in the kit, all of which are well known here and other sites. I myself was not too concerned with these issues, as they did not bother me, and by doing an in-flight build was able to avoid two of the bigger issues (canard flaps droop on the ground and way too thin wheels and tires). That also did not keep me from making some mistakes of my own on this build, mostly concerning the weapons load. Apparently AJ 37s did not carry anything on the outer pylons due to vibration (although this was fixed on the JA and other variants), and I mixed green training munitions with live RB 75s. Oops. I chose to do the Fields and Meadows splinter scheme, because OF COURSE. LOL This is without a doubt the most challenging paint and mask job I have ever done, and it is not even close. This makes the F-16C Blizzard scheme look like a walk in the park. Even with the DN Model masks this was extremely tedious, and required much touch up when finished, and I didn't get some areas exactly right. But all in all, I was very pleased when I removed the masks! The paints are all Gunze Aqueous except the black, which is Tamiya Rubber Black. I think the colors are a very nice match. When I think of the Viggen, I think of a few things that make this aircraft iconic. The unique shape. The fabulous green splinter scheme. And of course the flourescent red day-glo practice markings! I couldn't resist putting them on my model. For these I used the Euro Decal Viggen Day Glo sheet. I did have some problems with this sheet, unfortunately. First, these decals are very delicate, and tore at even the slightest resistance once place on the model. In fact, I originally was going to do "34" for sq 6, but I managed to destroy the #3 as I tried to place it. So I changed the number to 45 and had to be verrrrrry careful with the #4 , #5, and the vertical fin numbers. But I will say the Euro Decals are much brighter and look much closer to the real thing than the decals in the kit and the TwoBobs sheet. I also changed up my in-flight stand set up slightly with this model. Instead of the armature wire I had been using, I decided to try using flat aluminum bar. That worked out very well and I think it looks much cleaner and more eye pleasing. I will be using this method from now on. Here is what I used in this build: Kit: 1/48 Special Hobby AJ 37 Viggen Decals: TwoBobs AJ/JA 37 Viggen, Euro Decals Viggen Day Glo numbers Aftermarket: CMK Bofors M/70 Rocket Pods, Eduard Maverick Missiles, Hasegawa Weapons Set C (for Aim-9Js to simulate Rb 24Js), Master Model Pitot set, and DN Model Splinter Camo Masks Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Black 1500 (primer base), Gunze Aqueous H308, H309 Dark Green, H58 Light Green, and H310 Brown, Tamiya Rubber Black, Clear Red, Clear Blue, and Smoke, and Alclad II Gloss Black Primer, Airframe Aluminum, Pale Burnt Metal, and Burnt Iron. Future Gloss coat for decals and Future+Tamiya XF-21 Flat Base 6:1 ratio for final matte coat. Mig Ammo Deep Gray panel wash on the underside and black areas, and Deep Brown for the topside. Now on to the pics... Hope you enjoy!
  7. Hi all! I present to you my latest project, the 1/48 Kitty Hawk Su-35S Flanker-E, "Red 08" in the unique Eggplant Dark Gray scheme of the Russian Air Force, circa 2014. This is really a great kit that has excellent fit almost everywhere, with the wing joins being the notable exception. The kit is not without other issues, however. The exhaust nozzles are molded in the straight position which would only be correct for a powered up machine, not drooped at rest. The stinger tail has flare boxes on the top, which is only correct for the prototypes and early production aircraft. Luckily for me, I wanted to do an early production Eggplant Gray aircraft so the stinger tail is correct OOB for my build. If one wants to do a current in-service aircraft, this would not be correct. Aftermarket used were the AMUR Reaver thrust vectoring nozzle to fix the droop issue, and Begemot Decals. The Begemot Decal sheet includes all the needed stencils for both the aircraft and weapons. The weapons are all OOB, and they are very nice, although I am no expert on the real ones, so I cannot comment on accuracy. But they look pretty accurate to me. I think this kit includes pretty much every Russian missile, bomb, and rocket pod currently in use. This will be a nice addition to my weapons bin ( The KH Fitter was the same way, so I am set with Russian Ordnance for a while!) I used copper wire for the static wicks, some thin scrap parts for the 4 straight probes near the nose cone, and a piece of scrap clear sprue to simulate the interior of the IRST. So, one of the things I really wanted to concentrate on this build was the metalwork. The real aircraft have an amazing array of colors from the heat-stressed titanium, and I am quite pleased with how that turned out. It does look a bit exaggerated in some pics, but in person the look is about perfect. The AMUR Nozzles are quite nice and are easy to remove from casting blocks, clean up, paint, and assemble. Very happy with these. I really enjoyed building this kit, and recommend it to everyone. I know the GWH Su-35 is coming, and I will be getting that one as well to do a blue camo in-service jet. But for someone wanting to do the splinter camo prototype or an early batch Eggplant jet, I would say get this kit. Hope you enjoy! Kit: 1/48 Kitty Hawk Su-35S Flanker-E Decals: Begemot 48-039 Su-35 "New Generation of the Flanker" Aftermarket: A.M.U.R. Reaver Thrust Vectoring Nozzles Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Gray 1200 (main aircraft primer base) and Mr. Surfacer Black 1500, Akan Sukhoi Cockpit Blue-Gray, Mr Paint MRP-205 Eggplant Dark Gray, MRP-196 Light Blue, and MRP-032 Green for Wheels, Gunze Aqueous H305 Gunship Gray and H308 FS FS36375 Light Ghost Gray , Tamiya Rubber Black, Clear Blue, and Clear Yellow, Gunze Mr Color GX2 Gloss Black (gloss black primer for metalwork) and Alclad II Hot Metal Violet, Airframe Aluminum, Gold Titanium, and Jet Exhaust. Future Gloss coat for decals and Future+Tamiya XF-21 Flat Base 10:1 ratio for final matte coat. Mig Ammo Medium and Deep Gray panel washes.

  11. Heya everyone, As per usual, being a late comer to the hobby means i've missed out on a lot of stuff I actually need for builds... Anyhow, I'm after the Model Alliance MA 48109 decal sheet for Operation Telic Part 1. Even just the portion for the 12b Squadron Tornado GR.4 would be all I need as I can get the stencils elsewhere. Any help would be awesome... Many thanks, A

  15. I'm interested in getting the Kinetic E-2C 2000 Hawkeye and C-2 Greyhound kits. I'm also interested in Caracal Decals C-2 Greyhound sheet CD48012 "US Navy C-2 Greyhound "COD"
  16. Apologize for having only one pic per post, cuz i'm having problems with my photobucket account.... This is my latest build. F/A-18E/F Super Hornet is so popular that I decided to build it with an alternative way. That's the very reason i put it up on a brass rod, and have its landing gears modified as without ground load. Hope you enjoy it...
  17. Saw the new Furball Sheet for VFC-111's F-5N's, some really cool schemes on there, I think Geoff had the AFV Club kit in mind. Anyone know if it will work for those F-5N's the sheet depicts...I was looking at the Swiss F-5E in particular.

  20. Along time ago I had an ebay account. It got way to complicated and expensive for a simple modeler. I am looking to reduce my collection of kits and would like some helpful hints for selling my kits in the Classified section. How paypal works basically. This is new to me. Thanks Geoff M
  21. I looked around and found Dream Model in 1/48th but they are similar to Eduard's set and only have the early block small screen config for the IP. Any leads most appreciated... Cheers
  22. Hello all, I have the Sunkmodels Modelworks Russian (Su-33) Weapons Set for the Kinetic kit: Su-33 Weapons Set As the Kinetic kit requires only the half set to equip the kit with all necessary pylons (intake tunnel pylons and pylons underneath the intake ducts are missing completely in the kit) I have the other half left for sale including the half amount of missiles included in the set. 19€ plus shipping. I will keep shipping costs low, because It is possible to mail it as letter. Payment by PayPal is possible. PM me, if you are interested. Best regards, Thomas
